    If you are presenting at Structures Congress next week, please reply to this thread with your topic, date/time of <g class="gr_ gr_2008 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar only-ins doubleReplace replaceWithoutSep" id="2008" data-gr-id="2008">session</g>, and what attendees can expect to get out of your session.

    I'm starting to consider which sessions I'll attend, and figure I'm not the only one. I can certainly read the program descriptions, so what I'd really like to know for the "what attendees should expect" part is: What about your topic/presentation is so compelling that I shouldn't miss it?

    Hi Stephanie,

    You are welcome to the presentation on anchorage of headed reinforcing bars in concrete. I believe you will find it quite helpful as it will cover the new versatile design provisions for headed bars to overcome the shortcomings (inefficiency and congestion) of hooked bars and existing headed bar design provisions. The research conducted to develop the new design provisions is the largest of its kind with the tests of more than 650 full-scale specimens. Based on the findings from this research, ASTM A970 has been updated for head dimension requirements (ASTM A970-18) and the upcoming version of the ACI 318 Building Code (ACI 318-19) will incorporate the proposed design provisions. 

    Please visit the above link for detail.

    See you in Orlando.

    I will be presenting on Friday 9:30 AM as part of the "Design & Construction Lessons & Considerations" session, on the LaGuardia Airport Parking Garage (link below), focusing on the unique challenges and issues associated with  planning, designing and constructing a major airport facility based on a public-private-partnership (PPP) method of delivery.
    The punch line being "Is it a Good Idea?"; you will need to attend to find out !!!

    Stephanie,

    My presentation, which will occur at 4:15 PM on Friday 4/26, will discuss The Adaptive Reuse of the Apex Hosiery Company Building. The presentation will describe how several fatalities, as a result of a building demolition collapse in 2013, lead to the enactment and enforcement of a Demolition Ordinance in the City of Philadelphia. As a result of the Ordinance, the Philadelphia Structural Division of Pennoni Associates, Inc. became involved with a number of demolition projects, one of which involved the partial demolition and adaptive reuse of an existing manufacturing building located in Philadelphia. The presentation will provide details on the requirements of the Demolition Ordinance, the fascinating history of the Apex Hosiery Company Building, and the interesting facets of Pennoni's involvement with pre and post demolition aspects of the project, including encountering an unusual and unique vintage reinforced concrete flat slab system that was used to construct a portion of the original building.

    All,

    For those interested in professional liability and how you might get sued for negligence there are three sessions you should attend. The first is at 9:00 AM Thursday where two attorneys and a practicing engineer will present differences in professional behavior required under design-bid-build versus bidder-design. The second is at 11:00 AM Friday where a panel of attorneys, who defend structural engineers, will present stories about recent claims. The third is at 3:30 PM Friday where an actual claim, full disclosure, will be presented, un-redacted. Presenters will be the engineer and the defense attorney.

    Thanks, Stephanie.

    My presentation, "Examination of the ICC Acceptance Criteria For Handrails and Guards", reviews ICC Publication AC 273 published in 2017 by the ICC Evaluation Service as a specification for the design of balcony guardrails.  The examination shows that the specification contains excessively permissive deflection limits, which may result in an exceedingly uncomfortable guardrail design.  Bayhill 29-30, on Friday, 9:30 am to 11:00 am.

    I am looking forward to speaking at this conference with so many other wonderful speakers.  I will be speaking on the topic of effective communication, the full description is below.  I will be challenging participants in my session to make real change in their communication efforts immediately after my session.

    I will also be there with The Civil Engineering Podcast and will be conducting some interviews.  I look forward to meeting you Stephanie.

    Developing Effective Communication Skills for Engineering Professionals
     
    If you ask anyone how to be a successful engineer or a top engineering manager, they would tell you that you would need good communication skills. However, they will rarely tell you how to develop them. In this session, you will learn practical strategies that can be used on a daily basis to incrementally improve your communication skills and subsequently your ability to communicate with others. Implementing these strategies will put you on the fast track to becoming a top engineering manager because you will be in the small percentage of engineering professionals who can communicate effectively on a regular basis.

    If you follow the strategies provided in this session, this one session alone can have a massively positive impact on your engineering career and life.

    In this session, you will learn how to:

    • Communicate effectively with team members,
    • Say things in a way that will help you get the responses you are seeking,
    • Listen more effectively (the key to communication),
    • Be responsive so people want to communicate with you, and
    • Apply strategies to effectively collaborate with your team members.
